Top tether anchorage points

Top tether anchorage points

Your vehicle is equipped with child restraint top tether anchorages in all second row seat positions (second-row seats only in 7-seat models).

Using the top tether anchorages

Х Place the child restraint on the rear seat.
Х Route the top tether strap under the head restraint and fasten its attachment to the anchorage.

WARNING
Be sure to fasten the child tether attachment correctly to the anchor. If it is not correctly fastened, the child seat may not be properly restrained in the event of a collision.

Х Firmly tension the top tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer's instructions. Tension the top tether strap only after the lower anchor straps or the seat belt have been firmly tensioned.

For securing the child restraint to ISOFIX/ LATCH lower anchors,see page 48.

WARNING
Х Never route a top tether strap over the top or around the head restraint. It should always be routed under the head restraint.
Х Child restraint anchorages are designed to withstand only those loads imposed by correctly fitted child restraints. Under no circumstances are they to be used for adult seat belts or harnesses. The anchorages are not able to withstand excessive forces on them in the event of collision if full harness seat belts or adult seat belts are installed to them. An adult who uses a belt anchored in a child restraint anchorage runs a great risk of suffering severe injuries should a collision occur.
Х Do not install rear speakers that require the removal of the top tether anchors or interfere with the proper use of the top tether strap.
